The 31st August is fast approaching, and this is the last date for you to submit your claims for mandatory funding for training conducted within your own premises.


  • Any training conducted on or before 31st August 2017 will be included in your current cap of £1000
  • Any training conducted on or after 1st September 2017 will included in your new cap of £1000
  • Funding caps do not roll over (use it or lose it!) and all caps are reset on 1st September each year

We are pleased to say that there is still funding available to continue claiming.

The Mandatory/Specialist Fund is available for you to book training with approved training providers to come to your own site to deliver the training.

If you are not aware of, or already using, the Mandatory/Specialist Fund and would like to start using it please visit to learn more and to see a list of approved training providers.

Please Note: you can attend as many Open, Leadership, Champion, or Train the Trainer (Quick Win) courses as you like, attendance to these courses does not affect your cap (the cap is specifically for training on your own site).

The funding cap is distributed on a first come, first served basis. We cannot at any time guarantee funds, however, you are welcome to phone us on 01707 536020 or email Leigh-Ann on if you would like to discuss available funds to help you with booking courses.
